weekend wrap-up.

Happy Monday, glitter girls!

As always, the weekend wasn’t quite long enough. Here’s ours in pics:

J: It was so nice to finally have a weekend in town in Atlanta. Jay and I tried a new brunch place that recently opened across the street from our house called Buttermilk Kitchen. We went Saturday AND Sunday, so that should tell you something. Fantastic. Checked out the new Jake Gyllenhaal flick “End of Watch” at the new and improved AMC Phipps Plaza 14. Reclining seats and wine, y’all.

L: Not my finest weekend. My husband Joe and I were under the weather all week and weekend, and–for once–we didn’t do much of anything on Saturday and Sunday. I was able to accomplish a few things around the house, like decorating for Christmas and ordering my Christmas cards (rush delivery, GRRRR). I attended a fun ornament swap party Thursday night with a great group of girlfriends; it will have to count as my weekend fun pic. (The weekend technically starts on Thursday, right?)

Laura, Joe and Joe
one of our Christmas card outtakes. cheese!
Sequin Skirt
chambray shirt + utility vest + pearls + sequin skirt = my ornament swap outfit. it looks more festive than i felt!

my friend Kate constructed a cute photo booth at the swap. love these girls!

Hope your weekend was fantastic…or at least healthy! Tweet us pics @glitter_blog_xo.

friday five.

Ah, Friday…we thought you would never get here! Here’s what we’re wearing/doing/loving for the next forty-eight hours.

1. Nails. We’ve done mint, we’ve done lilac…this weekend we’re rocking this pretty yellow shade. NYC Lexington Yellow is the perfect yellow: not too neon, not too school bus. Sure, this sunny shade screams summer…but we also love it for fall. Picture it with grey, black and cream.

2. Fresh Flowers. Whether you get them from Bi-Lo (L) or the Farmer’s Market (J), fresh flowers make the *biggest* difference at home. Here are some cute ideas you can totally do with a grocery store bouquet.

3. Sweet Treat. Making these Sea Salt Fudge Brownies on Sunday night sure would ease the transition to Monday.

4. Movie. It is so seriously hot right now. Watching Celeste and Jesse Forever in a dark, cool movie theater sounds like a plan, right? Check out this excellent list of movies to see  before Labor Day, brought to you by The Daily Candy. (In Atlanta? Check out Cinebistro in Town Brookhaven! You can’t beat having a glass of wine and a great meal while watching a movie.)
